When the Ugurcs ot the Detroit-Chicago
ball game were posted at the Turf Exchange
last evening about twenty men , who had
placed their money on the western champIons -
Ions of ISSfi. went wild and yelled themselves
hoarse. The unusually brilliant surceases
of the Detroit club had led to considerable
betting upon the result of their tirst ineotlnir
with the Chlcagos. Money was freely otlort'd ,
10 to SO , on Detroit yesterday. Several men
who accepted these bets realized quite hand-
pome returns. _ _ _ _ _ _

It Looked Very Much tin If This Don
Understood and Honsoncd.
Christian Advocate : Mr. Harold Uoll-
ncr , a native of Denmark , and for many
years consul general of Denmark in this
city , and a portion of the time acting
minister of that kingdom , and wen
known to business mutt as the head of
the firm of Dollncr , Potter & Co. , of New
York , for many years resided in Brooklyn
in a mansion of the old style situated on
Washington avenue in the midst of what ,
for a city , are largo grounds. Ho al
ways took a great interest in his flowers ,
trees and vegetables , and the heart of the
city raised the very finest kinds of pump
kins. Ho also kept two or three dogs-
one a house dog , another ot thu spaniel
variety , and the third a powerful mas-
till' . The mastitt was always chained
near the stable and not far from the rear
entrance to the premises.
In a certain autumn the pumpkins
which were produced in lir. Dollncr's
garden were of such extraordinary size
and beauty , that they excited the cupidity
of a personwho stole two of the larg'est of
them and took thorn to the horticultural
exhibition , where he entered them as his
own , and actually took the premium for
them. This so raised Mr. Dolluer's in
dignation that he instructed Ins gardener
to take on" the largest of these which re
mained and deposit them in the collar ,
lost they also should bo stolen. At the
same time ho told him to set the mastiff
loose , so that if anybody clso came in at
night to steal the pumpkins the dog
would attack him. Pursuant to this order
the pardoner worked all the afternoon
taking oil'tho finest of the pumpkins ,
which ho carried up onn by one , piling
them near the cellar door , until ho had
finished , when ho conveyed them into the
cellar. About sunset ho unchained the
This dog had watched the performance
of the gardener , and during the night ho
gnawed off the largest of the remaining
pumkins and earned them one by ono to
the collar door , whore ho piled them up
and stood tniard over thorn until the next
morning , when , as the cook arose and
opened the kitchen door , with an ex
pression of great delight the animal
wagged his tail , looked up for approba
tion , and wont away. The next night he
gnawed off everything from the si/.e of a
ha/ol nut upward and carried them
to the cellar door as before. A few days
afterward , when the person suspected of
having stolen the pumpkins , who had al
ways boon friendly with him , entered ,
the mastiff sprang upon him with the
utmost rage.
Mr. Dolingorwas living when we wrote
the above , it was then sent to him with
the request that ho would certify to its
truth if ho could , or alter it till he could
conscientiously attest it. A few weeks
before his death was received our last
communication from him :
July 12. lbi. i certify that the account Riven
by Dr. Buckley of my pumpkins and my dog
is true In every particular.
It is plain that the mastiff had never
seen such a operation before. Ho there
fore must have comprehended it by an
effort of the mind , hold it through the
entire night , worked upon it , contem
plated it as a complete act , nnd surren
dered the pumpkins to the family when
they arose. Yet , of course , ho failed to
comprehend the reason , or to distinguish
the value of the ripe from the green
pumpkins. Ho also obviously connected
the man who had in his sight stolen the
pumpkins , with the deed.
At the time this was told the writer ,
there were six witnesses living the gar
dener , two servants in thn house , and the
owner of the establishment , his wife ,
and their son.

Deceitful Book Agoiit.
Dakota Bell : Mrs. Dollinger , a Sioux
Falls lady , who lives on Twelfth street ,
heard a rap at the front door the other
afternoon and responded to lind a very
distinguished-looking gentleman , ex
tremely dignified and handsome.
Ah ! Mrs. Dolliuger , I believe , " ho said.
"Yes , sir. "
"My name is Harcourt. I live at Hu
ron. Mrs. Scott of that place is your
sister , is she not ? "
"Yes , sir. "
"Ah , yes , I am very well acquainted
with her. She requested mo to call and
do a little errand for her. "
Oh , yes ; won't you stop in , Mr. Har

"Thank you , I bo.liovo I will. Very fine
weather we're having.1

"Yes , , easy .
"Thank you ; pray don't ' put yourself

"Quito well. I am pleased to say. By

and is by the Hov. Thomas 11. Doutor-
onomy. and it comes in twelve parts , ex
quisitely bound in cloth , leather or extra
Russia , is finely illustrated , and should
be in every library , and I am taking hun
dreds of orders , as you can see uy ex
amining this order book , and everybody
is wild over it , and all pronounce it the
most wonderful book written since the
Holy Scriptures. It treats of Daniel in
ten stages ; when ho started to go into the
don , when ho got a little further inwhon
ho got clear in , when the lions cauio up
to examine him , while they were
making their purvey , while
they retired to consult together ,
when they decided a post-mortem would
bo necessary , when they announced the
result to Daniel , when ho convinced them
that ho would not consent to an autopsy ,
when the lions got out and Daniel got out
embellished with numerous cuts , plans ,
maps and beautiful steel engravings ,
comes at $1 a part or $1' ? for entire work ,
put your name down here and pay as you
rocclvo each part , cloven parts now

"Mr. Harcourt , " said Mrs. Dollingor ,
rising and suppressing her tears , "you're
a mean , deceitful book agent. Get out of
my house 1"
" 1 know , but just sign "
"Go on , or I shall scream. "
"Certainly , certainly , if you Insist ; no
offonco. But can you tell mo thn name
of the lady next door , and whoro.somo of
her family live ? Ah , you won't oh ? I'll

be expected to take part in a ride to the
block Yards and Fort Omaha.
The committee on examination of the
state board of pharmacy , reported
through Secretary Daubach. It showed
how the committee had met and what
they had done. They had received 1,280
applications and examined twenty now
applicants for membership , but had not
passed upon the latter because of want
of timo. They had also decided to not
respect a certificate from any other state ,
the idea being that such'applicants ought
to undergo examination the same as any
other applicant.

The committee on delinquent members
was not prepared to report , and > on mo
tion of Mr , Daubach , it was decided that
the committee should bo empowered to
make whatever arrangements might to
them seem advisable with the secretary
with regard to delinquents.
Mr. Kuhn moved that graduates of col
leges of pharmacy which required four
years of practical experience before un
dergoing examination , be admitted to
practice without again undergoing ex
amination in this state.
This motion brought out n lengthy dis
cussion , in which some opposed" and
others favored the motion , while others
still thought it would bo a matter of
doubtful advisability , especially because
of the wording of th'o law , which did not
Bccm to encourage it.
The sentiment of the meeting was in
favor of respecting collegiate diplomas ,
such as those mentioned , though the law
opposed it , and the matter was dis
posed of.
It was decided to sustain the board of
examiners in refusing to recognize cor-
titicates from othe'r state pharmacy
boards , without examination of the ap

Governor Thaycr appeared before the
association by invitation , and bcinc called
upon made the following happy speech :
Mr. President , Ladles and Gentlemen : I
thought that I caught the words from a gen
tleman who went by me after Icalne in hare ,
that Governor Thayer was going to address
vou. 1 regret It , because I frankly admit to
you that 1 have nothing to say , nor any
speech to make to an association of this kind.
1 do not feel that I am able , I do not feel
myself competent to address you gentlemen
In reference to that branch of medicine
which embraces your profession the profes
sion of a pharmacist.
But 1 will say that I am glad to respond to
the call made upon mo to express to you my
hearty concurrence with the high purpose
for which vou ore now laboring. You are
making efforts to elevate the standard of
pharmacy , and you are entitled to the good
will of the entire community. 1 .rejoice with
you for the noble work in which you aro'em
barked. In the work In which you are
now laboring , YOU are under 'the
operation nnd control oC the
law. I believe at least 1 am Informed by
those who are supposed to bo competent to
judge and to inform me upon the subject
that you have secured a law , equal If not bet
ter In its benefits than any of those that wore
passed previous to your law , In anv state in
the union. And I was happy to bo able to
servo you , and very glad to have an opportu
nity as well as a most pleasant duty to per
form , In witnessing my signature to that
law ( .Loud applause. I
These bodies ot ours are weak , frail things.
They are often overtaken by disease. They
become exhausted through sickness and
many ills. The tirst thought , therefore , Is
for the aid and assistance of the medical ad
visor. Ho prescribes and you prepare the
medicine which ho offers. It 11 absolutely
essential that every physician should have a
thorough education In his profession. It is
absolutely Imperative that ho should never
bo permitted to engage In It , until tin has
been through a most thoroujh course ot
study which embodies all the details of his
profession. It Is evident that tills is Im-
iKtrtant because he deals with human life.
Human lives are entrusted to his care.
So It is with the profession of t'io ' pharma
cist. Human lives are entrusted to your
care , and handiwork. If you handle those
drugs which are necessary , in a proper man
ner and within proper limits for the restora
tion of life , you must be educated as to the
correct composition of medicines , and a pro-
liclent knowledge * of this becomes vour duty.
This profession of yours is indeed an hon
orable profession , and the efforts you are
making Is IncreasiiiK the honor. You are
elevating ( ho profession of thn pharmacist.
As a representative of the state l think I
know the Interests of the people ot Nebraska
well enough to know that they will Justify
me In saying that every citizen of this state
rejoices that you are taking steps forward In
this direction. You have raised your busi
ness up to a profession In which only educated
men , and men educated especially for your
profession , and Its duties , can encage.
I rejoice at It and 1 say with all my heart
may God speed you In your noble work. 1
trust there may be a college of pharmacy es
tablished In this state because It would bo for
the beneilt of the whole community. It
would help human kind at. large.
1 am in favor of every enterprise which
confers the most btneliclal influence upon'
society ; of every thing tbat tends to raise up
and elevate mankind : of any thing that wilt
holn to make better men and better women.
The more people art * educated In every pro
fession , every condition of the human family
Is bettered , and the'inutuat benefits accruing
from any business amjncreased.
1 rejoice that 1 UAV < J the honor and the
pleasure ot making jqtl an address. I re
joice that I have haaan opportunity of meet
ing with you. 1 havuynjoyed your meeting
exceedingly , and also , tlio tlno exhibit you
make In the hall. Jt Is an exhibit which re
dounds most highly to your cTedlt. It was a
pleasure to mo to meet the rer < r < ! 9tmtatlves of
so many of your profession from a distance.
They who have ) here to unite with you
In this pleasant a nil grand display.
Ladles nnd gentlqinun 1 thank you kindly
for your attention and for listening to me.
[ Long and continued applause. ]
The exhibitors of the different manu
facturers who have shown the goods in
the exposition hall then presented Mr.
N. A. Kuhn , of Omaha , as a token of
their appreciation of Ins efforts to fur
nish them suitable space and conven
iences , with an elegant easy chair richly
upholstered. The presentation speech
was made by Mr. Lilly , of Indianapolis.
Mr. Kuhn was entirely surprised and
could but brietly express his thanks.
President Reed , the retiring presiding
olllccr of the association , was then pre
sented with the chair in which ho had
sat during the session of the association ,
it being a very handsotuo and comfurta-
bio piece of oflico furuituro. C. J. Dau
bach made the presentation speech. Mr.
Reed was also at a loss on account of the
unexpected character of the honor , but
made a graceful and brief acknowledge
The association then adjourned sine
The next mooting will bo held in Lin
coln on the second Tuesday in May , 1838.
The local committee of the druggjsts
of Omaha invllod the visiting pharmacists
at 3 o'clock to take a drive about the city ,
and at that hour sixty carriages wore
filled with ladles and gentlemen who
cnfoyed a ride for three hours. They
visited South Oinahn and many of the
more picturesque points m the city. The
sentiment of the visitors. , who began to
depart last evening , was that they had
been most royally entertained in Omaha.
The exhibitors began packing their
goods , prepratory to going elsewhere ,
yesterday afternoon. Some , of the ex
hibitors are especially arranged for oc
casions such as this. Noticeable among
them was Scabury & Johnson , the man
ufacturers of pharmacopoa and surgical
plasters who made an especially line dis
play. Their exhibit is to bo taken to
Wichita , Kan.sns , where the druggists of
that state are soon to meet. Dr. Bicker ,
the representative , leaves to-day for an
extended western tour.
A Proposition For n Combination and
Ono Agent In Kncli Town.
II. B. Blowers , representing the Cali
fornia Fruit Growers' union , was m the
city yesterday , having returned from the
Chicago meeting of the traffic managers.
A very important i Deduction lias boon
made on fruit rates , { from California to
the Missouri river , which will bo of inter
est to all dealers in frjiits. Last year the
minimum freight rate was ? 280 per car
or $1.40 per hundred , and $ .110 or $2.55
per hundred shipped by passenger trains.
This season the rate will be $220 per car
or $1.10 per hundred on freight , and $120
per car or $2.10 on passenger trains. Last
year it was necossar to have at least fif
teen cars in order to make up a special
train : this season only ton are required.
In order to avoid the overstocking of
the market in the largo cities and the con
sequent lowering of < prices and loss to
shippers , the Unioh proposes to ap
point ono agent at. the different points
who shall handle all'tho fruits shmpad by
the Union. Omaha and Kansas City are
the only points west of the Missouri river
where agents will be appointed. There
will bo no agent in Denver , which has
always boon made the dumping ground
for the inferior fruits which would not
stand shipment further oast. It is claimed
that the Union will include in its mem
bership all the prominent fruit shiuncrs
of California , and hence will bo able to
control the market , as it may see lit.
The agent will deduct 10 per cent from

flow the Curtain Was Rang Down
At the People's Theatre.
Gilfoil , Bush & Company played at the
People's theatre last week and started to
give Omaha a second week of variety.
The management , however , cut short the
proceedings Monday , declaring the house
closed until the Clair-Pateo company
appears on Monday next. Before the
combination separated there was a war
like scene on the stage on which Messrs'
Howard and Alton , two of the perform
ers , were badly used up. A gun was
broken in one 01 the acts , and Will Lan-
don , the property man , would not allow
the baggage of the performers to betaken
taken away until the baggage was paid
for. Then ensued a general row. It
was a Donnybrook all around. Come
dians were turned into tragedians , and
a wor ° o looking sot of actors never came
IT a stage than did these members of the
Gilfoil& Bush party.

The Patrick Kami Hold.
The celebrated Patrick farm , northtfCst
of tie ! city , was sold yesterday. The pur
chasers are Kansas City gentleman. The
deed , which was filed for record yester
day afternoon , roads : KlizaV. \ . Patrick
and John N. H. Patrick to Nathan L > .
Allen and S. L. Underwood. 'Ihu area
Eold covers 015 acres , and the considera
tion is $015,000. The sum of $210,000 was
paid down and the balance , $ -100,000 , se
cured by a four year mortgage. Mr.
Patrick reserves his house and sixty acres
of hind.
It is the intention of the purchasers to
make the farm a splendid addition to tlie
city , platting a large portion of it out
and making live streets. A largo num
ber of line brick residences and neat
wooden cottages will bo at once erected ,
for sale and rent.
The motor cable road , which is pro
jected , will run through the addition ,
mid rapid transit to the business part ot
the city will be furnished before the end
of the year.
An cilbrt was made last evening to find
the gentlemen who are the purchasers of
the property. One , at the Paxton , was
out , and the other , although stopping at
the Mlllard , was not registered , and liad
evidently given Instructions to the man
agement to not bo approached , as the
clerk suavely told a reporter that lie know
nothing concerning such u gentleman
being at the hotel. It was ( subsequently
learned that both gentlemen had gone to
one newspaper ollico and given to that
publication the detailed information of
their projects.
The Omaha * to Moot the Delivers In
Throe Games Ulcycllne ,
The Omahas will return from Hastings
to-day with a faded and considerably
mussed laurel wreath. They have experi
enced three consecutive defeats at the
hands of a club which has not heretofore
been considered their match. The rea
son is not hard to find. The Omahas
liavo but ono pitcher. That one is
O'Leary. Ho wasn't with them , owing tote
to his damaged hand and wrist. The
statement that the Omaha's have but one
pitcher is not made for the purpose of
creating jealousy of him on the Dart of
the other men who have pitched this sea
son , and it oucht not to. lint it is the
truth. A ball player who can throw a
curve or a do/en curves , or can "shoot
it" over the plate , is not necessarily a
pitcher. To pitch requires brains as well
as dexterity. The successful pitcher
must discover and remember the weak
ness of every batter in every opposing
club. That is the true science of pitching.
The Delivers arrived in the city last
evening and are at the Cozzcns. They
are a fine looking lot of men and have
the cut of ball players. They will meet
the Omahas hero in three consecutive
games to-dav , to-morrow and Sunday.
O'Learj' will pitch to-day for the homo
team , his wrist and hand having become
serviceable again.
Iron Moulders' Statement.
The publication in yesterday's BEE of
the iron mouldors'walk-out from the foun
dry of Usher & Russell brought a commit
tee from the men to this oflico last even
ing. They give a different version of the
causes of the strike than did Mr. Usher ,
who waa authority for yesterday's publi
cation. They say that every two mould
ers have a helper. It is the business of
these helpers to carry water from the hy
drant to the sand which is used in mould
ing. As the demand for water is greater ,
occasionally , than the supply , there will
bo three or more helpers at the hydrant
at once On Wednesday morning this was
the .case and the man nearest the hy
drant was n white man named
William Norton. Next to him was the
Italian , named Antoine. The latter
pushed Norton away from the hydrant.
Norton in turn pushed the Italian away.
A second time the Italian pushed Norton ,
whereupon Norton si ruck him. The
Italian went into this ollico of the foundry
and made complaint. Mr. Usher came
out , and , without making inquiry as to
the merits of the case , discharged Norton.
It was then that the moulders took
their part in the squabble. They scut a
committee to the ollico with a demand
that Norton bo reinstated and that the
Italian bo removed from the foundry and
placed in the yard. Mr. Usher refused
to accede to those demands , but dis
charged the Italian , The moulders wore
not satisfied with this , and , as Norton
was not reinstated , they struck.
The latest information is that the strik
ing moulders tire to bo paid oft'on Satur
day night and that the foundry will lay
still for thirty days.
The moulders claim that they all ob
jected to the "dagos" as they term them ,
being worked at all in the foundry as
helpers , as they are not willing or com
petent , llns man Antoine is claimed to
bo a disagreeable follow in particular ,
and it is stated that ho had threatened
two or thrcu..ttnies to cut men with a

they confess a doubt as to the justice qt

gent community to withhold from them
moral support in their present uncalled The sched

The People or Ousiof Dnslro Their
County to ho Quartered ,
J. W. Smith , of Cnllaway , Custer
county , is in the city and has in his pos
session the petition of a largo number of
thu residents of that extensive section of
NebrasKa , directed to the county com
missioners , for the division of the county
Into four parts , which shall bo
known respectively as Ouster county ,
Marion county , Piirndl county , and
Gladstone county. This petition is the
result of a convention which was held on
Wednesday at Calhiway. Twenty dele
gates , live from each of the four pro
posed now counties , wore present , be
sides a largo number of other citi/.eiH.
The convention was harmonious. In
addition to endorsing the petition above
referred to , it adopted a resolution that ,
until the proposed division should bo ef
fected it was the sense of the people of
Custer county that the county seal should
bo removed from Broken Bow to
Sergeant , a new town in the
northeast portion of the county and
on the line of the B. & M. road which is
luilng constructed up the JMhldlo Lou p.
The town site of Sergeant was formerly
owned by Colonel E. P. Savage , now of
the Omana stock yards. Colonel Savage
has recently sold a half interest therein
to the Lincoln Town Site company ,
which is a B. &M. corporation.
The petition will be considered by the
Glister county commissioners , and if they
regard it favorably an election will be
field next fall. * The people \vill then vote
upon the propositions to divide and also
to move the county seat.
There appears to bo. as ono factor of
this movement , a desire to hit Broken
Bow a slap. The people of nil towns in
Custor county outside of Broken Bow , ac
cording to Air. Smith , feel that they are
not accorded fair treatment in county
matters by that place and that Broken
Bow is inclined to "hog it" upon every
opportunity. To secure the success of
the proposition to divide , the convention
resolved itself into a grand central cam
paign committee and will make it the
most prominent issue.
